Genius Vario for smart versatility.
The Genius Vario Ski Pole is Leki's all-arounder for classic cross-country enthusiasts and speedy skaters. This pole pairs a durable aluminum upper shaft with a lightweight carbon composite lower shaft, and a secure Speed Lock 2 adjustment point sits in the middle for quick access. The cork handle conforms to your grip with use, and Trigger Shark's Active strap attaches and detaches directly from the handle so you don't have to slip the strap over your glove anymore. Leki equipped the Genius Vario with a 4-in-1 compatible Super Race Vario basket to accommodate any snowy condition. The Carbide Diamond tip cuts through ice to keep you from flailing.

- Q & A
Quality, versatile, pole
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This pole is light (light enough for me anyway) and versatile while I am learning new skate techniques. Obviously, if weight is a concern, there are lighter options. The click in-out system for the straps is convenient and a must-have upgrade if you are participating in biathlon. My hands and wrists are quite small. and the straps fit me nicely with and without gloves.
If you are looking for a versatile, quality, pole to adjust with you as you learn, this is a great investment.
